Pep Guardiola's side played one of their two games in hand on Wednesday evening, narrowly beating the Seagulls at the Etihad. The decisive moment came just one minute before half-time as Foden wriggled his way through a handful of Brighton players and rifled in an outstandingly accurate strike into the bottom corner. City were unable to add to their slender advantage with Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan all missing big chances with Silva also hitting the woodwork as Graham Potter's side stood impressively resolute after going behind.
